ANTHONY JOSHUA says he will continue to work with trainer Rob McCracken despite criticism of his role in the 29-year-old’s shock loss to Andy Ruiz Jr.

Former undisputed heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis was among those to suggest Joshua should look for a new trainer, but he insists he will stick with McCracken.

“I took my first (professional) loss. How to explain that feeling? It has happened to me before but I feel like those times I lost years back have made me a stronger person,” Joshua said in a video released on his YouTube channel.
